Stayed here a couple of nights while getting work done at a nearby business. Reasonable price, friendly staff, breakfast OK, room clean, indoor pool OK. Casino nearby, although nothing like Vegas (hotel staff can provide coupon and request ride).

This was the choice location for a group price with a family wedding. We started out by getting the wrong room. They quickly corrected that. Then there were no hand towels or washcloths. They brought them promptly but not enough for all the people. There was only very tepid water for showers in the morning. There were new Keurig coffee... More

We haven't been here for a few years after a very bad experience with very rude employees. We decided to give them another try. Very much improved. Check in went very fast even though the poor girl had to deal with rude drunk people before us. She kept very calm even with the phone ringing like crazy and these guys... More

Arrived at 9:30 pm on a Friday night. No desk attendant on hand to check us in. Two other parties arrived at the same time. Rang the bell several times and no attendant came. Finally called the front desk from the house phone. Pretty soon two female employees meandered to the desk. No apology/reason for absence was given. The first... More

Older hotel, some maintenance issues, including peeling ceiling in bathroom, though room clean. Good TV, free breakfast (though breakfast area not kept that tidy, and selection minimal -- biscuits with gravy and breads, no pastries). It is on a back road, after the entrance to a Harley-Davidson dealership and before the well-hidden entrance to the local Ho-Chunk Casino. Finally, it... More

This hotel was great for the price. It was a little worn out, but had everything we needed. The hotel staff was great and very accommodating. They have a very large breakfast area that they let us use as a gathering place (we were there with a baseball team). We were able to bring down food and coolers; they were... More

No issues with anything regarding this hotel. It fully met all of the standard inexpensive hotel checkpoints. Staff were polite, room was clean, and there was a real breakfast included. We did not use the pool, nor did we eat breakfast at the hotel itself.

We checked in later in the evening....sketchy people in the parking lot. Hotel seems old and worn out but they try to keep it up. Rooms are ok but have a musty smell. Breakfast wasn't very good. I would probably pass on staying here again but would do if nothing else available.

One of the best hotel stays I have ever had. The staff was attentive and friendly. The facility was clean and nicely decorated. The rooms were comfortable and spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. When the air conditioning was not working properly in our room we called the front desk. The maintenance man came within 10 minutes. It... More

The management is horrible to deal with. We were corresponding with them about blocking rooms for a wedding. They told me that they had 10 available. They asked for contact info and said that they would get it set up. We sent the info asked for. When guests started booking rooms, they were told there were none. And after speaking... More
